Rough Year!!!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

All,

I know that I haven't been on in a while. During this year I have hit some rough spots.

Sister Pasted Away!!!

In May 2 days after seeing my little sister on Mother's Day she past away. She had issues in the past but was trying to do the right things when she pasted away.

She had began taking care of over grandmother and she had stopped smoking. I had told her on Mother's Day that I was proud of her and to take care of Granny. Then when I received the dreaded phone call on the 10th of May I could not believe it.

During the years I tried to mentor and teach my sisters how to become better people and how to make something of themselves. It seems that she had finally listened when she past away. R.I.P. Christy....We love You!!!

Since the passing of my sister I have been off again on again with how I feel about my weight. One day I would be focused then the next I would eat pizza.

A couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor to get a routine check up and he informed that I had to be put on blood pressure medicine. This did not set in so well. Because I am not that old. However, he said it was the recent weight that likely caused it and the stress. He did tell me that if I lost the weight I could eventually stop taking the medicine.

Current!!!
I am now more focused than ever at getting the weight off for good. I purchased a Bowflex for 250.00 and use it almost daily. I have also increased my cardio to levels that I was doing while I was deployed. My wife can't see the changes yet but I feel 120% better. My tee shirts are also getting lose. I can't wait to get the weight off.

Measurements!!!

I will be posting my measurements tomorrow.

    Hi Friend,
    I'm so sorry you lost your Sister. There really are no words that i can say that will help but just know that there are people who really do care. You've been supportive and a friend during our journey to becoming a better us. Even though we've never met I am one of those poeple.
    Speaking of our journey... I too fell off the wagon but that was yesterday... We know who we want to be... we have it inside of us to become this person. I'm with ya this time... Lets set a goal together... A small goal that will motivate us to move forward... What do you say?

    I am so sorry you are facing the Holidays without your Sister. Your encouragement to her was a blessing for both of you.

    It is so nice to hear from you again! I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of your sister. What a shock that must have been. It sounds like you are doing exactly what you need to do to get back to the healthy lifestyle you discovered while you were overseas. That is huge!

    Welcome back to Spark!
